“Down the stairs in art, Rosie made us do some art relating to Pride Month. I was very happy to finally be in a safe room where people accept the LGBTQ community. It was after this that I finally came out as trans to a lot of my teachers at school. I found out that school could be hard being openly trans but, at the same time, I became much more confident about being myself.”
“Music has always been a passion for me and Future is a place where I can always express myself.”
“Future is the best place ever: I’ll be able to cook a meal myself!”
“As a parent, it is a safe place that my son can go and be independent, an individual. In a world that the kids, can’t just go to the park or playout on the streets until dark with friends. Future gives me the confidence to cut the apron strings, and let him go to meet new friends, learn new skills, try new activities and there are trusted adults he can talk to. They develop and encourage individuals to be the best versions of themselves.”
Future Youth Zone Parent
“I used to be someone who would never go out of the house. All I would do is game, watch tv and focus on music. I never had many friends and had no confidence.
“My mum signed me up for the Youth Zone. I got introduced to other people and they were very friendly and this made me want to go more often.
“What helped me boost it up was the staff members. They helped me to be the best that I could be and now I can even perform in front of large crowds. Music has always been a passion for me and Future is a place where I can always express myself.
“I was the person who would never go out the house and now I never shut up!”
“I love our Junior and Holiday Club sessions! My favourite quote is ‘be the change you want to see.’ Young people need support and someone to be there. Youth zones are a safe space for young people and youth workers are the perfect guide. ‘Each one, teach one’ is another quote I like – that is how we all grow and learn and I think it is important for the younger generations’ development and mindset.”
“One of my favourite youth work moments is when I held a study group to help young people through their GCSE exams, some of these young people were experiencing difficulties at school. One young person really stood out because they did not enjoy English but had the determination to pass and turned up every session, to see the difference in their writing was amazing! I did more sessions, and this young person came back with a page worth of work that was beautifully written. It was the best feeling to see how my support helped to develop a young person!”
